Elder Chinedu Okoronkwo, the national president of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), stated that the organization is fully prepared to introduce compressed natural gas (CNG) as an alternative fuel for automobiles. The association plans to sell CNG for between N100 and N110 per liter by the end of June.

Okoronkwo confirmed this on Monday’s Business Morning show on Channels Television and emphasized that CNG has emerged as an alternative to gasoline.

Okoronkwo stated, “Very soon, we will roll out,” adding that CNG would assist in lowering the country’s energy costs. We are 90% of the way there, which will also reveal many possibilities.

Since natural gas would not be imported, the country’s exposure to fuel imports is expected to be significantly reduced by the CNG.

Okoronkwo said that CNG-powered cars started to gain popularity in the country because people were more aware of how efficient they are and how cheap they are compared to traditional fuels like diesel and gasoline.

The cost of food will go down as a result of people coming from the hinterlands bringing food to the cities, as you can see from the impact analysis. They need about N1.2 million to fuel trucks with diesel from Kano, but using CNG will cost them between N150,000 and N200,000. Around 1,000,000 naira is saved that will mean less expensive food and open up a great deal of different organizations.

In a letter sent to the Finance Ministry in April 2023, IPMAN requested that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) release a N250 billion intervention fund for the National Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP).

IPMAN explained that it requested that the fund grant truck, commercial tricycle, and vehicle owners access to loans to finance the purchase of natural gas conversion kits.

IPMAN stated at the time that it had collaborated with Gas Analytics & Solutions Limited to co-locate natural gas dispensers within their Nigerian network of more than 30,000 filling stations.

As per IPMAN, it controls more than 80% of the downstream oil area, and accordingly, the collocation model would assist with decreasing the openness in building new filling stations.

In a similar vein, Biodun Lawal, manager of corporate communications at NipCo, stated, when asked about the company’s desire to discourage investment in the gas sector, that the savings that will result from the elimination of subsidies provide additional opportunities to fund the nation’s enormous deficit in gas infrastructure.

“We are still investing more infrastructure with the expectation that customer demand will fluctuate. Some of the obstacles in harnessing the nation’s abundant gas resources include a lack of pipelines to transport gas across the country, the cost of converting to use gas as auto fuel, and access to gas through gas stations.
